10' x 45' treater coated in field in four days and flexibility to work with customer on all projects.

Job 1- Our customer called and received a quotation to re-coat the bottom 40% of 10' x 45' treater and in two days we were mobilized and on the job site ready to go. In four days our professional blasters and coating applicators worked together with our customer to ensure that the project was completed on time and within the budgeted amount.

Job 2- The scope of the job then included inspection of two vessels, spot blast nozzles and spots on shell and then application of coating to those areas.

Job 3- Our crew moved to new location and began blasting and coating bottom half of 10' x 45' treater and 10' x 30' FWKO. Blast crew on day one blasted treater. Day two our blast crew moved onto FWKO while our coating crew began the application of the first coat on the treater. In five days both jobs were blasted, coated, inspected and cured. 100 % holiday free and comes with a two year warranty.

Coal Powered Generating Station - Sulphuric Acid Tank

Project was to reline a cone bottomed sulphuric acid tank. Ceilcote 2000 Flakeline, a 100% solids epoxy novolac, was selected after consultation with Devoe. In preparation for the actual job on site, Ar-Tech simulated the application on its test tank. Techniques for stripe coating welds and protrusions as well as spray patterns and wet film thickness (WFT) could be developed prior to going to the job site.

The Salty Gravel Truck

What was a relatively simple job of painting the dump box of a gravel truck could have had short-lived results in the hands of an applicator with less diligent quality controls. Ar-Tech recognizes that not all blasts are equal and that sometimes what you can't see will cause a failure in the field. As part of Ar-Tech's quality systems a test was conducted for soluble salts after abrasive blasting was completed. High levels of chlorides meant additional steps had to be taken to ensure that the substrate was properly prepared before being painted.
